Find your new home in Crieff
Crieff is a market town in Perth and Kinross, Scotland, and has become a hub for tourism, famous for its whisky and history of cattle droving.
In the 19th century, Crieff became a fashionable destination for tourists visiting the Highlands and a country retreat for wealthy businessmen from Edinburgh, Glasgow and beyond. Many such visitors attended the Crieff hypopathic establishment, now the Crieff Hydro, which opened in 1868.
- Attractions include the Caithness Glass Visitor Centre and Glenturret Distillery. The nearby Innerpeffray Library (founded about 1680), is Scotland's oldest lending library.

- Every year the town hosts the Crieff Highland Games, which include music and dancing competitions and feats of strength.
